    Is dry humping cheating?

    As the title says...is dry humping cheating?

    Edit:
    Apparently there's a consensus.

    Lets pretend there's a "scale of cheating".
    On this scale actual intercourse and penetration is a 10.
    If you vote yes what would dry humping be on the numerical scale 1-10?

    Any type of intimate relationship with someone else is cheating. . . that means physical contact doesn't have to happen: if you develop an intense emotional relationship with someone when you're involved with someone else you're a dirty little cheating skank and no amount of minimization is going ot change that.

    Re: Is dry humping cheating?

    Assuming we're discussing the typical monogamous romantic relationship, I'd say so. Whether or not you "put it in" isn't really the question; it's not basketball.

    It would also be cheating in my eyes if my partner was carrying on a long-distance romantic relationship with someone they had never even touched. Having sex is not the issue. The issue is a violation of the understood parameters of the relationship. The dishonesty and lack of integrity is what's wrong with cheating.

    If anything, I would be even more pissed if my partner thought that doing everything but intercourse meant it wasn't cheating. Not only is that dishonest and lacking in integrity, but it's also sort of an insult to my intelligence and displays an extremely shallow and child-like grasp of relationships.

    Depends on the emotional aggressiveness of the relationship.

    I agree with this though, until the line of physical intimacy has been crossed the relationship is not completely consummated. Dry humping is close enough for that definition, so is oral or any other physical act. We're only talking degrees in all these situations but they also have degrees of responses too them.

    What did you do that you're trying to get out of, hmm ?

    It's the thought that counts - not the physical contact.

    It's all bad: it's all volatile to the relationship and a smack in the face of the other faithful individual.

    LMFAO I love you lolol
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Outercourse is a 5. Manual sex would be a 6. Oral jumps up to a 9 and intercourse would be a 10.

    The reason being, in the case of the latter two, not only are they cheating but they're also potentially endangering my health by exposing me to whatever an unknown person has, and with intercourse they're potentially putting a permanent wedge in the relationship by risking pregnancy with a different partner. If the cheating and the complication wasn't enough to end the relationship (which it would be, but for the sake of argument...) that definitely would be, because I'm childfree and I won't deal with having a kid brought into my life. Especially not some stranger's kid.

    In other words, the first 5 points are for being a dishonest jerk. The second 5 points are for endangering me and risking disrupting my life while you're at it. But let me be clear: 5 is enough to make me dump someone.
